Congressman Bridenstine Files “Repeal
15, 2013, Congressman Jim Bridenstine (OK-1), co-sponsor of HR 25,
filed legislation in the U.S. House to repeal the
16th Amendment. Repeal 16, a coalition of grassroots activists and
support organizations taking action to end our corrupt tax system and the oppressive
IRS, is championing this vital legislation.
For Fair Taxation is a proud member of the coalition and today, issued this press release in
support of Congressman Bridenstine’s legislation. You can sign the Repeal 16 petition
Herman Cain’s poll—the results
you have outdone yourself! This week Herman Cain announced on-air, the results
of his recent national poll where he asked listeners to vote on the tax reform
plan they wanted him to support – Cain’s own 9-9-9, the FairTax Plan, or a flat income tax. Drum roll…
The FairTax smoked 9-9-9 and
the flat tax! Congratulations to all of you and the rest of America who voted
for the FairTax, and thanks to Herman for reaffirming what hundreds of
thousands of Americans have been saying for years. There is only one tax
replacement plan that represents the American people and that’s the FairTax. We
look forward to having Herman honor his on-air commitment to once again serve
as a voice of the FairTax!
Truly Giving Thanks
loved Thanksgiving – the simplicity, the food and the time spent with family
and friends. I also love that it is a time to reflect upon our blessings.
campaign is blessed to have such committed supporters as you. As Congressman
Woodall said, you are the reason the FairTax is where it is – from your phone
calls, letters and donations, to your Letters to the Editor, billboards, yard
signs and the countless other things you do.
You are the FairTax and the
FairTax is you! Thank you.
we look back upon that tragic event 50 years ago today in Dallas, I leave with
you an excerpt from President John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s 1961 Thanksgiving Proclamation:
year, as the harvest draws near its close and the year approaches its end,
awesome perils again remain to be faced. Yet we have, as in the past, ample
reason to be thankful for the abundance of our blessings. We are grateful for
the blessings of faith and health and strength and for the imperishable
spiritual gifts of love and hope. We give thanks, too, for our freedom as a
nation; for the strength of our arms and the faith of our friends; for the
beliefs and confidence we share; for our determination to stand firmly for what
we believe to be right and to resist mightily what we believe to be base; and
for the heritage of liberty bequeathed by our ancestors which we are privileged
to preserve for our children and our children's children.
Until next week,
